Nicole Richie's diet pill addiction
May 26, 2006, 15:45 GMT
Nicole Richie's frightening weight loss was caused by an addiction to diet pills.
The brunette's close friend Crystal has revealed the 'Simple Life' star is hooked on Hoodia - a South African herb that fools the brain into thinking you are constantly full.She told Britain's More magazine that Nicole once told her: 'Hoodia makes you look hot in low-cut tops and backless dresses. It is good for me - the bushmen have sworn by it for hundreds of years and that's good enough for me.' The troubled 24-year-old dropped from a US size 2 to a US size 0 in a matter of months following her brief split from Adam Goldstein last December and she recently confessed that she was too thin. The pair reportedly split again this week as a result of Nicole's constant partying and worrying eating habits.
